“A charming and historic pub with rooms, nestled in the centre of the idyllic town of Rye. Rooms are chic, comfortable and filled with lots of natural light. The traditional pub prides itself in its love for English wine. Enjoy deliciously simple yet artisan locally sourced food at the restaurant.”

Hotel Review

"Laid back warmth" is a phrase which epitomises this establishment. The Ship Inn was fashioned from a 16th century smugglers' warehouse and consequently old beams, wooden floors and plenty of nooks and crannies abound. Comfortable old leather sofas, pine tables and plenty to entertain all ages including loads of board games or simply the Sunday papers! The same feel has been applied to the bedrooms where "seaside" is the predominant theme - think bleached floorboards and funky wallpaper!
